The White Sox have signed outfielder Michael Restovich and pitchers Ryan Braun and Franklyn German to minor league deals. 30-year old righty swinging outfielder Michael Restovich played in 48 games in Japan last season and he was 25 for 112 (.223 avg, .645 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 3 homers and 17 RBIs. He has also played in 152 games in his major league career in which he is 64 for 268 (.239 avg, .690 OPS) with 37 runs scored, 6 homers and 21 RBIs. 28-year old righty reliever Ryan Braun did not pitch at all last season due to injury. He has pitched in 35 games (0 starts) in his major league career and he is 2-1 with a 6.66 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP. 28-year old righty reliever Franklyn German pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Rangers last year and he was 1-3 with a 2.08 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. He has now played in 155 games (0 starts) in his major league career and he is 9-7 with 7 saves, a 4.25 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP. German has good stuff but he can’t control it as evidenced by his 119 walks in 158.2 innings pitched in his major league career. These guys will all likely start the season in AAA ball for the White Sox in 2009.
